Today is a big day. In case you haven’t heard, for the first time in history, America has a president who has unequivocally stated his support for same-sex marriage.
[I]t is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that same-sex couples should be able to get married.
In an interview with ABC in the White House, President Obama said he’d always hesitated to voice his support because he thought civil unions would be enough, that he’d overlooked the importance of the tradition of marriage. I don’t know that I believe this, exactly, but I also don’t care.
President Obama, you’ve won my vote in 2012. Just let’s please do something worthwhile with it.
